History of Tertiary Highway 809:
Tertiary Highway 809 was a short local collector road serving a series of mines near the Misema River, south of Kirkland Lake. This highway was created out of a route renumbering in 1969, when a 5 km section of Highway 564 was re-designated as Highway 809. The new route number came into effect on October 16, 1969. The road was gravel surfaced for its entire length. Highway 809 lasted until the mid-1980s, when it was decommissioned altogether. The highway was decommissioned in two sections during 1984 and 1985. The section of Highway 809 within Pacaud Township near Boston Creek was relinquished on November 1, 1984, and the eastern section in Catharine Township was relinquished on May 30, 1985.
